ICO seeking to appeal Clearview decision

The ICO have, unsurprisingly, applied for permission to appeal the decision by the First Tier Tribunal (Information Rights) reported in last month’s DPO Digest.

The Information Commissioner said:

“I fully respect the role of the Tribunal to provide scrutiny of my decisions – but as the defender of the public’s privacy, I need to challenge this judgment to clarify whether commercial enterprises profiting from processing digital images of UK people, are entitled to claim they are engaged in “law enforcement”.

For more detail on the case itself, please see the November 2023 issue of the DPO Digest.
